KA WA KEY CHOW & JARNO LEPPANEN
“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.” – Oscar Wilde
Ka Wa Key’s work explores soft masculinity and hedonism with the roots of the Asian and Scandinavian cultures and aesthetics.
All fabrics are crafted in-house in London.
Key graduated from the Royal College of Art in London with a Master’s degree in Fashion Menswear with the scholarships he obtained by winning the Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award (YDTA). He was nominated as one of the finalists at the H&M Design Award for his graduate collection, which was showcased in “DOUBLE JE” contemporary art exhibition in Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
Since AW17 collection Key has been designing with Finnish born Jarno Leppanen, who has cross-artistic background and holds a Master’s degree in Arts, to translate their unique design language into poetical visuals, films, performance and various projects.
